“I believe that the Internship requirement by WITS is invaluable! It forced me into a real training environment with real clients. I worked with 5 different trainers and was exposed to different training styles as well as very varied client ability levels. I saw first-hand how to interact successfully with clients and to keep them moving through their exercises. The Internship gave me the confidence I needed when I first began working as a Personal Trainer – I was hired at the facility I interned at!!! Get Moving!” — Carole K.

Medical fitness training is a relatively new field, and it requires a bit more from trainers to become certified. But if the trainers are willing to put in the effort, they get the opportunity to enter an in-demand niche of the fitness industry and work with a diverse range of clients to help them achieve their fitness goals.
If you’re thinking of becoming a certified personal trainer, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Personal trainers are more than just exercise instructors who design client workout programs. Personal trainers are required to help clients change their lifestyles to better accommodate their fitness and health.
